The German inventor and engineer Karl Friedrich Benz worked in the 80s of the 19th century on a motor driven car with a four-stroke engine. It resulted in a water-cooled engine on a tricycle base with one cylinder. The car drove for the first time in 1885 but it would take until July 3, 1886 before Karl drove his motorized tricycle on public roads in Mannheim. On July 3, 2012 we are looking for pop songs in which Mr Benz his invention is mentioned.
Songs of Taj Mahal, New Radicals, Eagles, Weezer, Dire Straits and H.T. Roberts shows that the current Mercedes Benz is adored by the chic people, the would-be's and tradesmen of all kinds of origin.
